PFA. Everything is inside this zip file.

Quite a mess you have there (you should probably start over).

BrcmPatchRAM.kext does nothing without BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext.
Also, BrcmPatchRAM.kext is not used on 10.11 or 10.12. It is for 10.10 and earlier.

Read the BrcmPatchRAM README.

I did according to the readme, as far as I understood.
Can you tell me in simple terms what to do? Please I know it may be a small problem but I have been on this issue for more than two weeks. Please tell me in simpler terms.

I will start over but then will again mess it up. So can guide me what to do after reinstall.

or maybe I can uninstall all the kexts installed by me. If that works.

Do I also have to inject fakePCIID? If yes, in clover or extensions?

Do I have to install like this:

1. FakePCIID
2. FakePCIIDbroadcom
(Please confirm me, I m not sure) 3. BrcmNonPatchRAM2 (But this depends on BrcmPatchRAM2, which you told not to install on 10.12)?

I'm confused after step 2. I have read the README thrice, but nowhere it is written anything about macOS Sierra or 10.12.

Thanks in Advance.

10.12 is the same as 10.11.

10.12 is the same as 10.11.
So I have to install both BrcmPatchRAM2, BrcmNonPatchRAM2 and BrcmFirmwareRepo. I think I don't need to install BrcmFirmwareData

Please tell me the sequence if I m wrong.

Thanks in Advance. Peace.
